mondo : man-bat 7″ vinyl



i’m superproud to have designed one of the sleeves for mondo‘s new assortment of batman : the animated series 7″ vinyl releases.

releasing this week at SDCC (booth #835), there are five different sleeves, each created by a different artist. i had my choice of villains for the project and i chose man-bat because a.) i’ve always loved his design and b.) it provided me the opportunity to create a set of die cut wings that fold off of the sleeve and expose the creature’s full form.

the project was unveiled on DC all access last week. click here to check out the video.

the colonial theatre : 1961



held at the colonial theatre (where scenes from the 1958 classic “the blob” were filmed) phoenixville, PA’s blobfest is a weekend-long celebration of monster and cult cinema. this year’s theme was “clash of the kaiju” and featured double bill showings of the blob with “mothra”, “king kong vs. godzilla”, and “the giant spider”.

the remainder of my new kaiju-centric “1961” screenprints (as well as the special online-only variant edition) will go on sale tuesday, july 15 at a random time in the strongstuff shop.

heartwork : “a city’s hope”


i was asked to contribute a piece to this year’s heartwork art project. here’s what it’s all about:

Heartwork is a project designed to raise money for art supplies within the art room at Target House—this wonderful home-away-from-home for the families of children facing long-term treatment at St. Jude® Children’s Research Hospital.

The whole idea started simply enough. We, along with a few other creative individuals, were asked to work on various design projects for the St. Jude Target House. But, in the process, we were so deeply moved by the experience that we didn’t want it to end. We witnessed firsthand the special connection the kids had with the art room in particular. It was a place where we saw kids at all stages of health just being kids. So, we began to wonder, “What if we could create a ongoing way to support more and better art supplies for these children?” It was then that Heartwork was born.

The idea is simple. Every year, a group of talented artists create a series of 11″ x 14″ giclee prints to raise money for the art room. Each of the prints feature an interpretation of the word “Hope” and each edition is limited to only 10 pieces and signed/numbered by the artist.

pretty cool stuff, right? i’m honored to be part of this amazing project.

mondo : robocop

mondo offered me the opportunity to create a poster for one of my all-time favorite movies, robocop.

like so many other folks of my generation, the film’s mix of ultra-violence and biting satire made an indelible impression on my young self and the flawless designs of robocop and ed-209 inspire my imagination even to this day.

“your move, creep.”

petersen automotive museum : mustangs forever

i had the privilege of working on another exhibit poster for the petersen automotive museum. their newest show, “mustangs forever”, celebrates the iconic car’s 50th anniversary.

from the petersen website:

“few cars have captured the hearts of enthusiasts worldwide like the ford mustang. Introduced at the 1964 new york world’s fair, the mustang helped define automotive youth culture in america and was so eagerly embraced by the buying public that it quickly shattered all sales records. whether outfitted for performance, luxury, or economy, the mustang’s identity has remained strong and consistent in a way that has stood the test of time.”

looking forward to checking this one out while in LA later this year.

“mustangs forever” is currently open and runs through october 18, 2014.
